This One Thing I Do

Some people have the ability to do several things at the same time, but, generally, we as humans get easily distracted. The word ‘focus’ implies concentrating on just one thing. Paul taught this saying, ‘but one thing I do...’ (Philippians 3:13).
Lion tamers often use a chair as a tool for taming lions and they point the four legs at the lion’s face. Because lions are used to focusing on one object at a time, seeing the four legs unnerves them and they become timid, because they don't know how to attack. It’s often the same in the ministry. When leaders try to do lots of things at once, they panic, stop and lose their strength to conquer.
When working with their team of 12, people need to focus on building a strong team. This is a golden rule.
If we look at Jesus’ example, for three and a half years Jesus focused on forming His disciples. He used every situation to teach, guide, and form them.
The main focus of Jesus ministry was not the multitudes, but his twelve.
As a leader, you must put things in order immediately. This means that the disciples God has given you to form should be a priority in your life. God has called you to reach your generations!
If you have not yet formed your group of 12, start with a cell group and believe that now is the time to form the greatest team. Focus on this!
